Many people arrive by ferry, car or plane to this New England longtime haven for the LGBTQ community filled with hotels, bed and breakfasts and rental properties for your stay. The residence of P-Town are friendly, sociable, and filled with local flavor.

Relax by day with the many picturesque beaches, art galleries, specialty shopping and casual dining spots as you and your friends stroll or bike along Commercial Street. You will be amazed on how convenient and accessible everything is to you in P-Town. Also take in the local sites with tours, the towering Pilgrim Monument, and neighboring Provincetown Museum.

Speaking of night, the nightlife is just as adventurous as the pilgrims landing and living here. There are restaurants, nightclubs, and cabarets for those who like socializing, drinking and dancing within walking and biking distances. The ocean breezes are delightful after a romantic dinner, happy hour, or a night of dancing at the local discotheque.

New Leadership Expands Provincetown’s Chamber of Commerce Influence

Provincetown, Cape Cod, MA – The Provincetown Chamber of Commerce has announced the appointment of Radu Luca as its new Executive Director.  Luca plans to continue the Chamber’s growth led by retiring Candice Collins-Boden who spearheaded its successes for 44 years.  According to chamber president, Patrick Patrick, “With extensive experience and a master’s in tourism marketing, Radu is the ideal person to expand the chamber’s services to the Provincetown community and increase awareness as a world-class tourism destination.”

Radu, with in-depth understanding of strategic marketing and advertising, grant programs, municipal operations and non-profit organizations, will be creating the Chamber’s marketing campaigns, overseeing major renovations to the Town’s primary visitor services building, and supervising a staff of seven while carrying on the chamber’s mission of working on tourism infrastructure (visitor centers, rest rooms, transportation, seasonal housing for workers, etc.)

Collins-Boden said, “Having dedicated my career to the people of Provincetown and its visitors, I am thrilled to pass the helm to Radu who has proven ability and enthusiasm to access cutting-edge strategies in securing Provincetown’s place on the world stage.”

The Provincetown Chamber of Commerce, a membership institution of businesses and individuals, works with the town-funded Visitor’s Service Board (VSB), Provincetown Business Guild, a LGBTQ+ marketing and event group, regional and state organizations to promote the Town as a welcoming destination abounding with art, history, a beautiful deep water harbor, the natural wonders of the Cape Cod National Seashore, unique experiences, boutique shopping, exceptional dining options and distinctive lodging.  Most importantly, Provincetown welcomes all and promises something for everyone who visits.

In addition to aiding visitors with information and connections, the Chamber offers equipment, at no charge, to ease the explorations of visitors with physical challenges.  As it strives to enhance life for residents and visitors alike, the chamber also supports a range of non-profit health and cultural entities to help ensure the vibrancy of this remarkable town.

The chamber is a vital force working with the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum to promote Provincetown 400, the anniversary of the Pilgrims’ first landing in 1620.  As a part of the celebration, the Mayflower II, a full scale replica of the tall ship that brought the Pilgrims to America will visit us, once again, in September of 2020.  The Mayflower Compact, often referred to as the forerunner of the United States Constitution, was signed in Provincetown Harbor.  Prior to heading to Plymouth, the Pilgrims spent five weeks exploring this area.  Many eventually returned here to profit from the fertile fishing grounds.

Collins-Boden, perhaps the most known and loved person in Provincetown, plans to continue her involvement in the town on a volunteer basis.  Patrick said, “The chamber has flourished under Candy’s long and dedicated service.  The Board and our members couldn’t be happier with the vital work she has done for Provincetown.”  She has earned Governor’s Awards for Tourism under multiple administrations, served on countless state and regional boards and committees over the decades and traveled overseas to bring international visitors to our shores.

While under her auspices the Chamber initiated a shuttle bus service in the late 70’s, fought for a portion of the room tax dollars returned to the town of Provincetown to be used specifically for tourism marketing, initiated the annual Lighting of the Pilgrim Monument, advocated for a regional year round cape wide bus service, co-founded Pilgrims’ First Landing Park and the Schooner Regatta, to mention a few.

Working with the Board and Members, Luca’s creative and managerial effort will surely continue to build on and increase the Chamber’s accomplishments in supporting and promoting this fantastical town.
